The forty kilometer long Espoo Waterfront Walkway, "Espoon Rantaraitti", takes you through around hundred different point of interests which vary from historic hotspots to beautiful nature views. You can choose a walking route or taking a bike path. In addition to the swimming beaches and boat harbours, there are other interesting places along the path, such as scheduled archipelago boats - for a trip to the islands - and bird-watching towers.

The walkway also passes the Nature House Villa Elfvik, hosting art and environment-related exhibitions, the museum villa at Rulludden and Villa Sinebrychoff at Karhusaari. The nature of the walkway varies from spacious urban to small scale verdant.
